I recommend this family hotel to eveyone staying in Cusco. We were nice welcomed and the owner is really caring about the people staying in her hotel. As we were taking a bus at 10pm, the owner let us keep our luggage in the room and even rest a while before going to the bus station. The hotel is located 7min from the main square but hard to find the first time, you may need to call them when you arrive at the height of Pantaqcalle. Breakfast very nice.

Great hostel in excellent location from awesome places to eat and shop. Host was amazing, we called her our Peruvian mama who made epic smoothies and eggs. Not a party hostel in anyway but a great place to relax, unwind and enjoy cusco from this safe and close hostel.

This hostel was great and Raquel was so nice and very welcoming. Breakfast is tasty eggs and bread. Raquel upgraded us to a room with a private bathroom free of charge and was very accomomdating when we went on the Salkantay trek. Our bags were stored in a secure locked room the entire time. the hostel was also quite clean, quiet, and comfy when we were there.

This is a super nice place to stay. The owners let you feel at home, really, and they're so nice! Just 5 minutes walk from the main square, nice little restaurants around. You have to ask for hot water, but really, it takes 3 to 4 minutes to get hot so no complaints about that! Absolutely recommend!

This Hostel was awesome. Definitely the best value hostel we stayed in. Breakfast was awesome and included omelets. The people who run this hostel were amazing and the most accommodating people I have ever met. They bent over backwards to make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. I highly recommend this hostel.

Carlos is very accommodating, breakfast is very good! The staff will pretty much bend over backwards to suit your needs and are great people. You do have to knock on the door every time you want to enter but never had any trouble getting let in. You also have to let Carlos know about 10 mins in advance when you want a hot shower but that never really bothered us.

Good hostel with really attentative and helpful staff. Carlos the owner didn't speak much English but he really did help with everything to a great length, using google translate to help. Small place and very homely dining area (think it is shared with the owners) with ok breakfast offering omelette and the usual breads, jams etc. Hot water was a little luke warm even after asking but not too bad. A little away from the main square but peaceful little street.

We had to ask in advance for hot water to be turned on for each shower, which was very painful given we could not always plan ahead as to when we would be wanting a shower. Additionally we had to knock and wait to be admitted every time we returned to the accommodation, which was ok, but felt awkward if we were coming and going a lot, or coming home later (early morning) from a night out. Staff tried to be very helpful, but on the whole, I would not stay there again.

I cannot say enough good things about Raquel and Yawamarki. She was so attentive to our every need. She always had mate ready to serve. Breakfast was delicious (either eggs or yogurt, and always bread and jam). She frequently called taxis for us. She even helped us store our bags for a day after we returned from Machupicchu! For free! Raquel is like your Cusquenian Godmother. A true joy. The only difficulty we had was finding her place. Luckily, the people of Cusco were helpful when we asked.

Great hostel. Raquel doesn't speak English, but met our needs by using a translator. The location is very close to the main square. Breakfast was great. The rooms were spacious and clean. There is no heat in the rooms/hostel, so at night it is very cold, he does provide multiple blankets though. The showers are not hot. He will turn on the hot water, but it only warm water with little pressure. Overall, I would recommend this hostel, staff is super helpful. Taxi from airport should be S10-15.
